Geno Smith passed for four touchdowns, leading West Virginia to another wild shootout win in the Big 12, this time taking out Texas on the road.
Smith, who has 24 touchdown passes this season without an interception, hit Stedman Bailey with a 6-yard score with 10:50 left to play. Andrew Buie ran for 207 yards and two touchdowns, the second giving the Mountaineers a critical 10-point lead late.
West Virginia (5-0, 2-0) didn’t seal the win until recovering an onside kick with 14 seconds left after Texas scored a touchdown on a pass from David Ash to Marquise Goodwin.
Smith was 25-of-35 passing for 268 yards. Texas’ aggressive defense hit him early and often and forced a second-quarter fumble that the Longhorns recovered for a touchdown.
